    Min Qty: 1 g

    Description: 4-6' hardy annual plants of the parsley family. Foilage is used fresh or dried and makes an interesting tea. Foilage is slightly darker and stronger than other varieties. Seeds are used in pickling and seasoning. Seed heads can grow 18" across and can provide over a cup of seeds each. Self sows. Native to Eastern Europe. Attracts tiger swallowtail butterflies!

    Planting Instructions: Plant seeds into well-worked soil after danger of frost has passed. Direct seed after last frost date. Sow seeds about 1/4" deep. Dill prefers soil that is loose, well-drained, and of average richness. Thin seedlings to 12-15" apart when they are 6-8" high. Responds well to pinching. Since dill has a taproot, it typically doesn't require excess watering. Does best in full sun.
